Dealmakers Impact Report 2012: Financiers

Bazoian handled client Village Roadshow Films’ co-production financing deal with Warner Bros., and in November Rabobank, along with JP Morgan Chase, finished Village Roadshow’s two-part $1.125 billion credit facility. The co-production dates back to 1997. It has co-financed 72 movies, been refinanced eight times and now plans to co-finance six to eight additional films annually in each of the next four years that Warner Bros. will distribute. “This is the longest-standing film financing facility for a co-financer,” says Bazoian, referring to Village Roadshow Films, whose parent is based in Australia and has ties to Warner Bros. going back decades. Netherlands-based Rabobank is mostly associated internationally with agribusiness but has banked the Village Roadshow film deal since 2003. Gotham-based Bazoian had ties to Village Roadshow prior to joining Rabobank in 2004.
